20. Patricia Phelps de Cisneros and Gustavo A. Cisneros

 Having grown up with Spanish colonial art, Patricia and Gustavo Cisneros began collecting Latin American art after their marriage, in 1970. Over the years their art collection has expanded to include more than 2,000 pieces, including about 200 Spanish colonial objects. Based in New York and Caracas, the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros (CPCC) includes works by Joaquin Torres-Garcia, Lygia Clark, Jesus Soto, Alejandro Otero, and Carlos Cruz-Diez.

The CPCC is one of the core cultural and educational initiatives of the Fundación Cisneros. The CPPC’s mission is to enhance appreciation of the diversity, sophistication, and range of art from Latin America, advance scholarship of Latin American Art, and promote excellence in visual-arts education.







21. Monique and Max Burger

 Monique Burger and her husband have been building up their art collection, since the early 1990s, with emphases in Euro-American, Indian, and Asian art. Currently, it includes more than 1000 works by some 120 artists. When finding pieces they do not look to much into at first, they go with their gut and then do research and learn as much as they can about it.  

The Burger Collection also engages in arts patronage, and has helped make possible the realization of various outstanding artistic endeavors such as the film House with Pool by the artists Hubbard & Birchler, the Motion Pictures project by Julian Opie, the light installation Public Notice 3 by Jitish Kallat on the Woman’s Board Grand Staircase at the Art Institute of Chicago in 2010, the exhibition Marguerite de Ponty of Urs Fischer at the New Museum in New York in 2009 or the work Wille, Macht und Wandel by Herlinde Koelbl.







22. Joop van Caldenborgh

 Art lover and collector Joop van Caldenborgh is committed and not only displays great devotion and dedication to art but also has a solid belief in it. At the age of sixteen he bought his first work of art with the money he had earned himself with a newspaper round. Since then he has visited many exhibitions, workshops, fairs, galleries and auctioneering firms both in the Netherlands and abroad. Under his supervision and as a direct result of his rather obstinate choices, his Caldic Collection has grown out to become a sizeable and internationally famous art collection consisting of highly diverse works of various art periods, styles and disciplines.







23. Alexandra and Steven A. Cohen

 Steven A. Cohen is an American hedge fund manager, and has become a prolific figure in the finance industry. He is America’s 35th richest person with net worth of $9.3 billion, and owns 7% of Chinese search engine, Baidu. He was not born into a rich family, his parents were a dress manufacturer and a piano teacher. His association with finance began at an early age when he took poker as a hobby and often betting his own money in tournaments. Poker taught him how to take risks, which he carried into his profession.
For the past decade Alexandra and Steven Cohen have been among the highest profile consumers in the art world, buying works like Damien Hirst’s “Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living,” the 14-foot tiger shark submerged in a tank of formaldehyde, for $8 million, and de Kooning’s seminal painting “Woman III,” which Mr. Cohen bought privately in 2006 from the entertainment magnate David Geffen for a reported $137.5 million.
